How to make Green Coffee Extract

How to make Green Coffee Extract
Green Coffee Bean Extract is often used for weight loss purposes. Here's how to make your very own extract at home.

Green Coffee Beans

Any type of green (raw) coffee bean may be used for this purpose.

Distilled Water

Distilled water is used because it contains no chlorine or minerals to contaminate the taste or properties of the Green Coffee Bean Extract. A regular tea pot may be used for this purpose or even a medium sized sauce pan with lid. You can brew up as much as you feel you will need for 3 or 4 days. Or you can simply make the extract fresh each day much the same way as you would your coffee.


Use 2 ounces of Green Coffee Beans to 12 ounces of water. Place both in a tea pot or sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and allow mixture to simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool for at least an hour. Remove the beans from the water with a slotted spoon or strainer.

Note: the longer the bean mixture sits, the stronger the extract will be.

Suggestions for use: Green Coffee Bean Extract may be taken daily alone or mixed with other food and drink to make it more palatable. If taking the extract alone, drink one ounce in the morning and one ounce in the evening. Adding a teaspoon of raw sugar or honey gives the mixture a better taste.

Caution: You may experience changes in bowel movements or discoloration of urine. This is nothing to be alarmed about. If these changes are associated with pain, then discontinue use of Green Coffee Bean Extract. Last but not least, remember that caffeine is also extracted in the process. So do not consume more than one ounce in the morning and one ounce in the evening.
